Be Camp Pro

Hyatt Lodge, OakBrook, IL

September 10-12, 2019

Be Camp is changing lives. We regularly hear words like “life-changing” and “transformational” from
Be Campers. For the first time, we’re offering Be Camp Pro to leaders dedicated to improving wellbeing in the workplace. Leaders committed to building and sustaining the world’s best places to work.

Are you looking for new ideas to enhance wellbeing in the workplace? Interested in expanding your network and learning from others? Do you want to get better at modeling the way for your team?

Welcome to Be Camp Pro.

At Be Camp Pro, we tackle topics that invite you to dig deep. We’ll explore courage in the workplace and other organizational hurdles like transparency, authenticity and trust. We’ll share our proprietary Team Wellbeing model and look at how team habits have a direct impact on employee wellbeing. We’ll explore how some managers support a culture of wellbeing and others don’t – and what organizations can do to create systemic change.

Why come to Be Camp Pro?

At Be Camp Pro, you will:

  • Learn how teams and leaders can live (not just talk) wellbeing

  • Meet and learn from other wellness, talent and learning professionals

  • Grow your network

  • Build your influence

  • Renew your energy

  • Determine a plan forward for you, your teams and your organization

You’ll leave with new ideas for expanding wellbeing in your organization, scaling and influencing wellness at work.

Your People Need You

You have something special to contribute to your workplace. You believe in the power of wellbeing for your workforce.

Get clear about what you want and how to get there. Get the clarity and confidence to create a culture that puts people first, for real. Rethink what’s possible with mind-body work, educational SPARK sessions and a supportive community of like-minded professionals.

Be Camp Pro is for professionals who:

  • Need an opportunity to re-energize themselves and their approach to workplace change

  • Are looking for the next right thing to expand wellbeing at work

  • Want to build their network of thought leaders
